Black Feast is a culinary experience that weaves food into a celebration of Black artistry. A creation of Black narrative, an offering to Black lineage, here guests and artists across communities come together to share an intimate and sensory four-course meal.

Our dinners are entirely vegan and without the use of gluten or cane sugar in a commitment to understanding the use of Black and Brown bodies in food labour.

Our February event, Black Feast: Love Letters, is inspired by visions of love from Black poets. Guests will experience four courses that act as culinary interpretations of poems of Morgan Parker, Dominique Christina, Safia Elhillo and Nicole Sealey.

Curated by two Black queer artists, Black Feast was founded on the premise to rail and dance against the erasure of Blackness in the food and art worlds. All are welcome to Black Feast experiences.

This meal is created as a celebration, a dance, and an offering. This meal is created for you.
